I think my family has always been pretty approving of "fleeing the nest" and being adventurous, but I only just got my license, so that puts some restrictions on things.
What are you looking at playing at pandemonium?
I agree with Duxburian, you should try and go to Pandemonium as it sound like it would be a lot closer. Soakemore should still be good this year, but I started the planing too late and as such it is later in the summer then I would have liked. (My bad
) We wont be doing the island this year, it will probably be really hot, and as such it will mostly be night wars. It should still be fun, but I'd probably stick to Pandemonium as your first war as Soakemore next year should have awesome night wars and
I have been having pretty pour luck with scouting so far, I have checked out 5 locations at this point and non were very good. There are a lot of parks around me, but most of them are centered around streams located in a Vally, which would result in just about every battle being a race to the top of the hill. Wood Acres Elementary School is also unusable for night wars as it is under construction. I just got back from checking it out, and it is a lot more secure then the last time they renovated the place, no trespassing signs, padlocked gates, and 6 foot tall fence that didn't look very climbable. I plan to widen my search for good day battlefields starting tomorrow by going out to Great Falls park and maybe Blockhouse point if I have time. Not so sure about Great Falls, as it is mostly just woods, but Blockhouse point apparently has some Civil War ruins that might be fun.
Worst come to worst we can hike a little up the canal a little to use the very northern tip of Carderock (which we haven't used yet) one day and Westmoreland park the other; because it will probably be so hot during the day, the main focus is going to be the night wars anyway, to which there are no shortage of schools in the area and I plan to explore as many as I can before next week.
